Marion Resource Recycling Facility Selects BHS for Recycling System
70-tph Construction and Demolition system to recover more than 90 percent of material
Salem, Ore. – June 9, 2020 – – Marion Resource Recycling Facility (MRRF) has selected Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) to supply the company’s new Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) to process Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris. The advanced industrial recycling system, scheduled to be operational in the second quarter of 2021, will be able to process more than 70 tons per hour (tph) and capture more than 90% of inbound material for reuse.
BHS, a global leader in recycling technology development and system solutions, has included in this design advanced air separation technology from its Amsterdam-based subsidiary Nihot. The Nihot DDS Windshifter employs circulated air technology to separate materials into three fractions based on density. At MRRF, it will recover aggregates and wood from less-dense materials. The system also features the BHS Total Intelligence Platform to provide centralized system control and performance data.
“We are thrilled to invest in a system of this caliber,” said MRFF General Manager Kevin Hines. “It’s going to be a tremendous asset for years to come not only to our company, but to our partners, haulers, customers and community stakeholders. Recycling in Marion County is about to get a major upgrade and we couldn’t be happier partnering with Bulk Handling Systems – we look forward to hitting the on-switch next year,” Hines concluded.
“It has been a pleasure working with the MRRF team,” said BHS CEO Steve Miller. “BHS truly appreciates MRRF’s trust and partnership – this facility is designed for high-performance C&D recycling and will support their long-term success,” Miller went on.
